SUM
Platform  x64, Win32, .NET 
Purpose

To sum the elements of an array.

Class

Transformational function.

Syntax

FUNCTION SUM(ARRAY, DIM [,MASK])
FUNCTION SUM(ARRAY [,MASK])
INTEGER DIM

Description

ARRAY is an array of any type. The result is a scalar or array with the same
type as elements of ARRAY. DIM is a scalar integer in the range 1 < DIM
< n where n is the rank of ARRAY. MASK is an array of
type logical which is conformable with ARRAY. Elements of MASK are set to true
when corresponding elements of ARRAY are to be included in the sum.
If DIM is present, summation is along the dimension specified by DIM resulting
in an array of rank n  1. If DIM is absent, the result is a scalar
giving the sum of all the elements (for which MASK is true).

Example

If A is then
SUM(A, DIM = 1) is [5, 7, 9] and SUM(A, DIM = 2) is [6, 15].
